Surgical Procedures on the Left Knee
Surgical Procedures on the Left Knee

This medical exhibit demonstrates three surgical procedures performed to repair various defects in the articular surface of the knee. Image A orients the viewer to the area of the injury as well as the surgical approach taken in the first surgery. Two stacked inset illustrations show the detail of the surgery - patellar retinaculum release - and the pre-operative condition revealing a chondral defect. The next two insets detail the following surgery - shaving of the medial meniscus - and the condition of the meniscus prior to surgery. Two final stacked insets show articular surface of the femur inflammed with Grade 2 chondromalacia. The last image shows the surgical procedure performed to remove the defective tissue.
